Zondervan New Mom’s Prayer Bible Giveaway

Having time in the Word, is a wonderful thing. When you are a new mom, whether it’s your first child or your fifth, finding that time in between feedings, bouts of crying and everything else on the never ending to-do list, can be difficult.

To help new mothers maintain their relationship with God, Zondervan released the New Mom’s Prayer Bible, which includes 52, one-minute Thought-Starters that invite new moms to “dip” into God’s Word for a moment of spiritual refreshment.

Each Thought-Starter in the New Mom’s Prayer Bible is followed by an option for a five-minute prayer or a 10-minute study to help mothers learn even more about what God’s Word has to say for that specific day.

“Not only does the New Mom’s Prayer Bible deal with a woman’s spiritual relationship with God, it provides a little extra help with handling new situations, such as coping with sleep deprivation and marital adjustments.

I was sent a New Mom’s Prayer Bible to review. I loved it from the moment I took it out of the box. It is dark orchid and deep plum. I love those colors. So that right there put a huge smile on my face.

Now keep in mind, I am not a mom to a newborn, but I do have a 2-year-old, 4-year-old and 6-year-old. I still get woken up numerous times in the middle of the night, am always tired and have a pile of laundry that never ends. So, although there isn’t a little baby in my arms, I still feel like this Bible will work for me as well.

I chose to do both the 5 Minute prayer and the 10 minute study. The Thought starter I opened up to was titled “Number My Days” and focused on Psalm 90:12 “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

The New Mom’s Prayer Bible includes 52 Thought Starters that are on colored pages throughout the Bible. It is suggested to attempt one Thought Starter per week. Each Thought Starter includes a 5 Minute prayer and a 10 Minute study as well as a Word To Take With You Today (a word to focus on throughout the week).

I know for a fact that there is a reason why the Thought Starter I just happened to open the New Mom’s Prayer Bible to was one that reminded me to enjoy my life as a gift. It is so easy for us to sometimes wish our time away. I often tell people that I can’t wait until my children are a bit more independent.

But I was reminded this morning that time does go fast and these moments that I am given today may just be the sweetest of my life.

Oh, and the Word To Take With You Today, as a part of the Number My Days Thought Starter, was SAVOR. I love that. What a great word to focus on throughout the week. Yes, I do need to do a bit more savoring!

Is there a new mom in your life? Are you a mom in need of a little more time in the Word? Have you been searching for a study Bible? The Zondervan New Mom’s Prayer Bible may just be the one for you or the new mom in your life.

The New Mom’s Prayer Bible features the trusted NIV translation and is available in Zondervan’s popular Italian Duo-Tone binding for $27.99.

    This Bible sounds absoultely wonderful!! I am a mom to an almost 2 year old who keeps me busy 24-7. This would be an amazing treasure for me.

  2. says

    I would absolutely love to win this! I would probably keep it for myself. I love the idea of the thought starters. With a busy two year old on my hands, I definitely need it!

  3. Jenn says

    This bible sounds great! As a mom to a 2 year old, nearly 4 year old, and expecting our third around New Year, this would be a blessing to me. Lately God has really pressed on my heart the near for prayer time and reflection on His Word. This sounds perfect!

  4. says

    If I were to win, I’m not sure if I would keep it to use or to share with a friend that just had her 2nd baby a couple months ago. Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway! :-)

  5. says

    definitely count me in—I would love to give this beautiful bible to my new daughter in law…who just gave birth to our first grand child….what a blessing it would be~!~

  6. Jodi says

    It would be great to win this Bible. I’m a mother to five and even though one is in college and the youngest is in grade school, it’s still busy in our home. I’ve been trying to approach Bible reading like exercise–a few minutes here and a few minutes there throughout the day add up to good physical health. Small chunks of time with my Bible reading and devotions also add up to big benefits spiritually. Thanks!

  7. says

    I’m a new mom to a 22 month old. :) I would absolutely LOVE this! I’m constantly convicted to spend more time in the word & this sounds wonderful..

  8. Amy says

    I would love to win this prayer Bible. I think I would hold onto this Bible for myself because it sounds like what I have been looking for.

  9. Allison says

    Love to give this away to a new mom, it’s so hard to be consistent in the word once you have kiddos and what a great resource this would be.

  10. says

    Wow, I would love to win this Bible for myself! As selfish as this sounds I really need it for me. I’m a mom of two little boys and last month I started a Bible Study because I really want to be in the word more and want the accountability of other Christian moms. Well, everyone uses the NIV and I don’t own one, I’ve always used the NKJV. So, in order to get the most out of the participation part of the study I really should get this version but that’s just not feasible for us right now. I would love to win! I know that the four winners will all be blessed! Thank you for entering me!

    This Bible would be for me. I have three kids, a 22 month old boy, a 4 month old boy and a little girl who is in heaven. She would be 5. I have been looking for a compact Bible. I need something that is for ME. I have recently realized that GOD’S WORD is what I need more of. I trust that God will place these Bibles in the right hands.

  12. says

    This is a wonderful gift idea! It’s even more wonderful to read so many positive replies from moms who are enthusiastic about it. I have been a mom for 14 years now, with 3 children aged 14, 10 and 9. In the past years, I thought I was too busy to make time for hearing mass, praying, and much less, read the bible, especially with the challenges that a recently divorced mother like me encounter. Am I truly mistaken! I’m happy to have rediscovered HIS WORD, recently bought my own personal bible and I find my days to be incomplete when I don’t take the time to read my daily devotion. God speaks to us through the bible. It’s His personal love letter to us. No other book is better to teach us how to live our lives and be good parents to our children.

  13. says

    I love the variety of Bibles Zondervan has. I want to buy the study Bible for teen girls for my daughter. I am not a new mom but I think I would keep the Bible for myself. I have been looking for something Biblical to read and study, and this sounds perfect.

  14. says

    I would be so honored to win. I am expecting my 4th this winter and know there is change in the air. It would be so nice to have a new Bible to help with all the other “newness”

  15. says

    I have to say, if I were to win it would be a treasure for myself. (I don’t really know many moms, let alone new moms.) However, I will always keep this in mind for a great gift idea whenever one of my friends is expecting!!

  16. says

    I am a first-time mom to an almost 5-month-old. I am having a very difficult time finding moments to read the Bible. I also work 40 hours a week so I always feel tired. I need God’s guidance in my life and would LOVE to have a Bible such as this. It would make my life a little less hectic, I’m sure!

  17. says

    This sounds so great! I am 10 weeks pregnant with our first baby, due in May. We’ve hardly told anyone yet, so this feels funny to post, but we’re really, really excited to welcome this little one into the world. What a great way to stay connected to the Word as a busy new mom!

  18. says

    As a Mother of Three (Grownup) Children… I can think back to the days when I had a little one in my arms and only had 10 mins quiet time to spare to pray and look into Gods word. I always felt my spirit renewed. I now have two daughters at the time of their lives where this book sounds as though it would be perfect for them. One has a 2 yr old and is waiting to adopt another child, and the other is starting the process of wanting to fill her life with her first born. (The third is their unmarried Brother, I’m sure they can pass this book to one day). It sounds like a wonderful gift, for the many new Mom’s I know also. So I’m thinking even if I win this one, I will be buying one soon also.

  19. Sharon J says

    I will be a grandmother to my first grandchild. I would be giving this great gift to my daughter who is struggling with making a few decision, so this would be great. Thanks.

  20. Jami says

    Sounds like a quick way to read the Word each day. I have a 5 year old and a 5 month old and work full time. Time is very hard to find right now.

  21. Tabitha Walker says

    This is perfect for any moms. I would love to win this. As I do pray everyday and have trouble with coming up with words to say so this would be wonderful.

  22. Kelly says

    One of my good friends from work is pregnant with her first child. I would love to give her this new mom prayer Bible. She would absolutely love it!

  23. Briana says

    I am 29 weeks pregnant with our baby boy and would love to have this as I discover what it means to be a new mommy to Sebastien. I would place it next to my rocking chair and it would come in so handy during those late nights and would be great to hold while having my cup of coffee in the morning. This looks like a beautiful devotional book for a new mom like myself.

  24. says

    I would love to win this Bible. I have a small NLT Bible that I carry in my purse to read when I have to wait (like at a doctor’s appointment or whatever), but I really miss having devotionals and study bits in there. The Bible I had in high school had those, but the topics aren’t really appropriate for me at this stage of my life. And my second baby is due in 3 months. :)

  25. says

    I’m so excited about this!! My daughter is 6 months old, and it’s just not as easy to get into the word anymore and I’ve been trying to find a new and fresh way to do so. Love this! And even if I don’t win…it’s going on my Christmas wish list :)

  26. Debbie Ramirez says

    I would love to win this for my cousins girlfriend. She is due Dec. 4 and it’s their first child, a girl! This would be an awesome gift for her. I wish I would have had something like this when my kids were younger (6,14,17,19,21). Thanks for the opportunity and for sharing this great book with us. If I don’t win, I know what to add to her gift :)

  27. Caroline Altman says

    I would love to win this. I would use this for myself and would cherish the opportunity for the 5 minutes to help me keep focused in my faith.

  28. CaseyH says

    This is just what I need. I would love to have this to help deepen my relationship with God and to strengthen my prayer life.

  29. Cee says

    I would love to win this. I am in need of encouragement, especially now that I’ve gone back to work, and my little one is in daycare. Thank you so much!

  30. says

    I’m a mom to 6 blessings – ages 2 to 15 years. I’m currently using my 15 year old’s beat-up “teenager” Bible, because I can’t seem to locate mine since our move this past summer. Being a mom is my highest calling, I was just praying for God to give me direction in communications with my children. (LOVE your website!)

  31. Jessica says

    I could use this bible and I would use it every day. I recently went into preterm labor and ended up having my fraternal twin daughters 2 months early due to preeclampsia. They spent two weeks in the NICU, and every day I cried because it is just not natural to be separated from your children as a mother. It tested my faith every second. I had to be strong, though, because I have a 27 month old daughter who needs her mommy. She has a neurological disability called Sensory Processing Disorder, and every day is a challenge. Between my two preemies, one having severe reflux and gags and suffocates 4-5 times a day, and my 2 year old, I am constantly wondering why me?? I know it is because God wants me to do His calling, to raise His children. I would love a daily prayer book to help me with my day to day tasks, to become closer to God yet again.

  32. Amanda Benoit says

    I would so love to win this!!! I have a 2 year old and an 8 month old… It’s VERY hard for me to find to spend time in personal prayer/Scripture. What a great idea for Mom’s!

  33. Sarah says

    What a beautiful Bible. If I won it would be a gift to me. I am a mama to two beautiful boys.
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  34. Lisa blanco says

    I would love to win this for myself. I’ve been in search for a mom devotional/bible for a while and would enjoy this. I am a busy stay home mommy of 3 boys ages 2,3,& 5 so I don’t reLly have a lot of time and this would be perfect for my chaotic days

  35. says

    What a wonderful Bible. As a mom of 9, I often find it hard to get time in the Bible as I always have someone who needs me. We just had a new baby last Sunday and this is the Bible that I have been looking for. Thank you for the opportunity!

  36. Cindy says

    What a great way to share God’s love! My sister is due with her second child in Nov. We will be visiting and having a large family reunion at her place for Christmas! This would be an awesome gift and even if I wasn’t selected as a winner, I will still buy her a copy! Thanks for the review of this Bible! And ladies, remember the power of touch. Whether a personal card, a gift of a visit or meal, or the tangible hug, we need to reach out and touch someone so they know how much they are valued! God Bless!

  37. Renee says

    This would be a great gift for me to use in my new Mom2Mom ministry, I could share the devotions with the women of the group on a weekly basis. Every Mom needs a bit of encouragement. Blessings, Renee

  38. says

    My name is Karla Taylor, I am wife to Tracy for almost 10 years now. Mother to 3 amazing blessings. I am going to admit that finding the time to spend alone with God has been hard. I try the best I can and sometimes it just seems there are other things “pressing” for my attention. What I have discovered is if I can have a little bit of time here and there where instead of sitting down and watching tv or folding laundry I can open the Bible and read a few verses that speak to my heart my day goes by better If I could win this Bible I would treasure it as I continue my journey for that alone time with Him.

  39. says

    Would love love love to win this! Anything catered to a mom is amazing, especially a bible! i love my small bible but would love to have something to help my everyday struggles as a mom!

  40. says

    I’d love to win this for my friend who has recently sharing with me a heavy heart for how overwhelmed she is with raising her young children. She needs some inspiration only found in the Word of God to lift her spirits and remind her that she serves Him when she serves her family, that this season she finds herself in is temporary (this too shall pass), and that she is LOVED by her Father in Heaven!

  41. Danielle says

    hi! i am a first time mom (i have a 7 week old preemie) and it has been quite the adjustment all around. i am struggling to find time to read my bible and i love the idea of a meditating on a single word that would help me connect with an entire concept about god.

  42. Priya says

    I would love to win this for myself. I have a little gal and am expecting a baby in Jan.this book would help me greatly to spend quality time with god. Thanks for the chance.

  43. Jenn says

    I would love to win this for myself – I am the mother of a 2 1/2 year old, a 6 month old and also expecting my third child in March! This just seems the perfect thing to get in some quiet time for reflection which is much needed around here.

  44. Jenny says

    As the Mom of a 7 month old son and 5 year old daughter, trying to run my own business from home, and having some serious economic setbacks this year, 2010 has been the toughest year in 18 years of marriage! God is amazing but I often find I’m prioritizing work, business and trying to keep afloat over just spending some time with him – even 5 minutes. When I do, it makes such a difference to my day, but I keep trying to claw back control as I try to get my family through this incredibly tough time. Mix in the heady hormones and sleepless nights of being a new Mom and phew! Running on empty! I would love the chance of having some bite sized, easily manageable time just one to one with God and this thoughtfully produced Bible will help me (and other women!) do that in a meaningful way. Thank you!

  45. says

    This is exactly what I need after giving birth to our first child (son) about a little over a month ago! I would also recommend it to four of my friends who are also new moms.

  46. says

    If I win this I would give it away as a gift. There is a struggling new Mom at our church. I know she would be blessed by it!!

  47. Marcella Cook says

    I would love to get a copy of this!!! I have my one miracle baby and he’s the love of my life. I believe that everything happens for a reason also!

    @TheMarciFactor

  48. says

    I would love to win this! I have 3 children: a 3 years old, a 1 year old and one that is due in a few months! Finding time to read God’s word is a struggle because my kids keep me so busy. It would be nice to have this devotional so that I could be encouraged and refreshed everyday!

  49. Melissa Barnes says

    This I would keep for myself – my children are 8 & 5 but everyday situations arise when i feel like a new mom – and just like you there are always things that come up…nighttime wake-ups, accidents, no time for me time….I have been seeking a moms devotional or prayer book just for me to start my day or sometimes just the “current” situation in the house off right
    thanks for giveaway

  50. Dana V says

    Even though my daughter is already 2, i think i would like to keep this one for myself. I could really use a prayer book.

    danav27 at gmail dot com

  51. Tracey Pike says

    This would be great! I would probably keep it for myself until I finish reading it then pass it on to one of my pregnant friends or other first time moms I know. This is neat, I don’t like to read much but I love to read this type of stuff. :)

  52. Shannon says

    I would love to win this bible for myself. I am a new mom to 10 month old twins and between work, the babies and my husband, its hard to find time to foster my relationship with God. I like the concept of one “thought starter” per week- even I can handle that! Great giveaway!

  53. K Brown says

    I would love this. I have 2 children & will begin babysitting in a few days. This would be very beneficial, I’m sure!

  54. says

    I would love a book such as this, i have been wanting to find something i could use to give myself a few minutes each day to dive into God’s word. In the craziness it’s so importent to still make time :)

  55. says

    This sounds perfect for me! I am trying to get back to church and God, but with a 2 month old and 2 year old running around, I often can’t seem to find the time. I feel like taking 5 or 10 minutes out of the day for myself (and God) would do me a world of good.

  56. SunRae says

    I would love to have this bible. It would be a new treasure for me to enjoy. I am always looking for new ways to study the bible. Thank you for this giveaway!

  57. says

    I would treasure this! I think it’s an awesome idea for moms to feel like they can spend some time in the Word despite all of the overwhelm of daily life. If I don’t receive a copy here, it’s going on my Christmas wish list! :)

  58. says

    I am so excited to have won Erica! But I never got an email from you (this happened last time I won something too :( I never heard from anyone……
    I’m hoping to somehow get in touch with you. So here are 2 emails:
    lisagm[at]snet.net or lis.miller[at]yahoo.com
    I’m very excited – thanks so much! Lisa

  59. Cordeania Patrick says

    Stumbling across this is a god-send. I am the mother of four and I was praying this morning about finding more time to spend with God. I have a great desire but life somehow takes over and leaves me totally drained. I know that I need help in this area. Thank you God for putting this burden to help moms on the heart of the author as well as those giving away this great bible. Amen!

  60. Deanna Morales says

    Hi, my name is Deanna and I became a new mom 7 months ago when I gave birth to my baby boy Eli. Financial stress has had me beat down for a little while and I just recently returned to church. I believe this bible would be the foundation to a new beginning for me and my son.
